Stockport Grammar School welcomed 200 Old Stopfordians, current and former staff and their guests to this year’s Retirements and Summer Reunion barbecue on Saturday 24th June.
The event marked reunions for the classes of 2007, 1976 and 1967, as well as an opportunity for staff and visitors to say goodbye to members of staff who will be leaving the school at the end of the academic year, including Mr Howson (Senior Deputy and English), Mrs Johnson (English), Mr Young (Economics and Business), Mrs Flint (Learning Support) and Mr Browne (Psychology).
The event welcomed Old Stops and former staff from all generations as far back as 1945 and included an Old Stops cricket match arranged by Ian Hall (OS 1983).
Old Stops enjoyed exploring the school, revisiting memories and seeing the school’s development, including the new Woodsmoor Building. John Boardman (OS 1966), the brother of late mountaineer and Old Stopfordian, Peter Boardman (OS 1968), also kindly brought in the Boardman Tasker Trust anniversary display of Peter’s 1976 Chanagbang expedition.
A selection of photos from the event can be viewed on the Old Stopfordians’ Facebook page.
We hope to welcome many more Old Stops back to next year’s reunion, which has been scheduled for Saturday 23rd June 2018.
